Verdict

Harris Tweed went out like a light on his reappearance here over a longer trip. He might have needed that run but isn't getting any younger and will be in front to be shot at again. Elidor made a winning return to action at Thirsk and is worth another try at this level while Pether's Moon was second in a Group 2 at Newmarket last week and will make a bold bid to defy his penalty. He beat the disappointing Gatewood at Kempton on his final start of last year. Jockey bookings suggest Cap O'Rushes is the pick of the Godolphin pair but we are going to take a chance on AREA FIFTY ONE. Nicky Henderson does well with his Flat team and his charge wore down Gatewood on soft ground at Doncaster in March - he looks to have improved again over the winter.
